Celeb reportedly buys NFL legend's ring
Lawrence Taylor's Super Bowl ring will hardly know it switched owners.
According to Jay Glazer, the Hall of Fame linebacker was told that a fellow aficionado of all things illicit, Charlie Sheen, was the buyer of his Super Bowl XXV ring that recently sold for more than $230,000 at auction. It's not known whether Taylor's information is accurate but, man, we hope it is.
Taylor's agent, Mark Lepster, confirmed to Glazer that LT was told Sheen bought the ring. They are still trying to confirm this poetic purchase. It's like Phil Spector buying O.J.'s Heisman.
The actor has an extensive sports memorabilia collection that includes Babe Ruth's 1927 World Series ring and the contract that sold the baseball great from the Boston Red Sox to the New York Yankees. He also owned the infamous Bill Buckner ball.
Taylor's son, TJ, put the ring up for auction unbeknownst to his father. The troubled former star said he had no problem with the decision.
The NBA announced its All-NBA First Team on Thursday, highlighted by the Heat’s LeBron James and the Thunder’s Kevin Durant. Chris Paul of the Clippers, the Lakers Kobe Bryant and Dwight Howard of the Magic rounded out the team.
Derrick Rose, last seasons MVP, and Deron Williams, were two notable omissions from the three teams selected by the NBA. Despite having one of the best records all season, none of the Chicago Bulls were selected to any of the teams. Bryant joins the All-NBA first team for the seventh consecutive season and 10th time overall. James joins the team for the fifth consecutive season, sixth overall.
The All-NBA Second Team is comprised of the Wolves Kevin Love, Blake Griffin of the Clippers, Andrew Bynum of the Lakers, Tony Parker of the Spurs and Russell Westbrook of the Thunder.
Carmelo Anthony and Tyson Chandler of the Knicks were named to the All-NBA Third Team, along with the Celtics Rajon Rondo, the Mavs Dirk Nowitzki and the Heat’s Dwayne Wade.
